Founded in 2021 by three passionate supporters of mobility, Lyon-based Ultima Mobility can be rightly hailed as a symbol of the French bicycle industry. With a range of bicycles bearing the “Origine France Garantie” label, 90% of the value of which is generated in France, Ultima aims to produce innovative, eco-responsible mobility solutions that are accessible to the general public. Winner of the “Design & Innovation Award 2024” in the “urban” category, this connected bike by Velco has everything to please.

The Multipath: A versatile bike combining innovation & eco-design

The Multipath range, which aims to remove all the obstacles to soft mobility, has not gone unnoticed, with its injected frame made from recycled carbon, a material that makes for very light frames. With this patent combining ecology and innovation, the Multipath can be used in the city with the City, or as a cargo bike with the Cargo Family to transport the whole family. The sturdy frame also features a suspended fork for sportier use in the Trekking version. The online configurator enables cyclists to create / customize their Multipath to suit their mobility needs.

Made in France / French technology is firmly anchored in the DNA of the Multipath (and also Ultima), with local subcontractors and a desire to encourage the re-industrialization of the bicycle industry in France.

Ultima Mobility x Valeo Cyclee x Velco: a collaboration based on expertise made in France

In line with its commitment to innovation, Ultima Mobility has chosen to work with recognized French experts in the bicycle industry, calling on Valeo Cyclee for the Smart e-Bike System motorization and Velco to connect the Multipath.

Thanks to this collaboration, cyclists who have chosen the Multipath benefit from innovative services that enhance their electric bike experience; they are available within the mobile application developed by Velco, in the colors of Ultima Mobility :

  • Theft protection: real-time geolocation, remote locking/unlocking, audible alarm and power cut-off, theft report
  • Maintenance assistance: advice, reminders and alerts – Statistics and performance
  • Statistics and performance

Numerous changes are planned over the coming years to enhance cyclists’ safety, protect bikes against theft, and improve the lifespan and experience of cycling.

Integrated into the Multipath since its launch, connectivity has proved its worth in tackling the problem of theft (more than 400,000 bicycles are stolen every year in France), resulting in “happy ends”, much to the delight of cyclists!

The Velco team is delighted and proud to have been able to support Ultima Mobility for several years. It’s a brand truly aligned with our values of French know-how, innovation and boldness. It’s also one of the first bicycles on which we put our three-way partnership with Valeo Cyclee into practice, adding the demands of the automobile to the challenges of cycling. With the Multipath, we’ve come up with a new, highly attractive proposal to overcome the obstacles to cycling everywhere and by everyone.
